Our Mission

Watson Children's Shelter is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis.

Each year, more than 100 children — infant to age 14 — are brought to Watson Children’s Shelter. On average, each child stays at the shelter for 50 days, though some children need to stay longer until their family crisis is resolved or longer term supportive care can be arranged. We welcome children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  From the moment a child steps through our doors they are surrounded with love. Our two shelters are designed to provide a safe, comfortable and welcoming stay for every child.

Some of the children have never had a bedroom, never eaten a true family meal, and never had toys and art supplies. They often arrive with just the clothes on their backs.  Here, they have their own bed, a place for their belongings, rooms for play, crafts, dining and learning.  We provide them with clothing, nourishing meals and an opportunity to be what they truly are – beautiful, smart, important children.

Currently, about 40% of our operating funds and supplies are provided through private donations from people like you! Thanks to the generosity of our community, every child leaves Watson Children's Shelter with clothes, toys, books, blankets, and most importantly, hope.
